On Wednesday, December 27, 2017 a fire broke out at the Grigs Farm Apartment Complex in Princeton, New Jersey

Firefighters battled the two-alarm fire that spread through the roof of the three-story apartment building on Billie Ellis Lane. The fire started around 9 p.m. Wednesday evening.

The American Red Cross and Princeton Human Services continue to assist the displaced residents.

The apartment complex, which provides affordable housing, is owned by the nonprofit Princeton Community Housing.

The cause of the fire has not been determined yet and the investigation is ongoing.
